The NATO alliance is the most successful military alliance in history between peacefully bringing about the Soviet Union’s downfall and its ongoing efforts to fight terrorism and deter a resurgent Russia. Congress should go on record as expressing America’s commitment to NATO in light of a rumored withdrawal from the alliance.
While the NATO alliance has been invaluable, it may not be so worthwhile in the future if allies don’t meet their defense spending obligations and the U.S. should consider leaving if that continues to the case. There also isn’t a genuine effort to leave NATO underway, so this bill is more about messaging than policy.
